On the life side
JACKSON, Mich. (AP) — A retired librarian who thinks it's never
too late to turn the page on an embarrassing event in his family’s past
has returned three library books nearly 75 years after his mother
checked them out
Edward MacGonomy Jr., of Virginia, said he wanted to clear the
family name by returning the books to the Jackson Public Library.
The books now have cracking bindings and fragile pages. Library
Director David L. Leamon said they are the longest overdue hooks
he's ever seen returned. Library officials decided hot to fine Mac-
"It’s nice to know that guilt is still alive and well. Imagine, still in-
terested in clearing the family name after all these years,” Leamon
said. “He could have just tossed those books into the trash, but in-
stead, he took die time to add a little humor to our day.”
MacConony, 72, worked at the Library of Congress in Washington,
DJC.. from 1963 until his retirement m. 1985^ ^Uyps in Alexandria, ,
In a letter to the Jackson* District Library kued Feb. 21, heaaid his
mother, Frances, must have inadvertently tal$n the three books when
she moved from Jackson to Detroit in 1914 after she married.
"When she died in 1974, the contents of her library were just sort
of boxed up and put to one side," MacConomy said of his mother.
“It doesn’t seem very logical, but I never got to the material to do
anything with it or about it until just a few weeks ago.
I thought well, they don’t belong to her and they don't belong to
hie — 1 belter send them back.”
The books were Sir Walter Scon's “Quentin Durward,” Kale
Douglas Wiggin’s “The Birds’ Xmas Carol” and Louisa May Alcot-
fs "Jo’s Boys.”

Pastures need to be fertilized as
soon as possible for rapid recovery
and good quality forage. Pasture
fertilization will help provide addi-
tional grass for harvesting hay. Spring
* rains generally provide for more than
half of the total seasonal growth
during the first two months. If rain-
fall is adequate this spring, excess
forage can be harvested as a hay crop.
Pasture fertilization is most effi-
cient and effective when based an a
soil test, and producers still ha ve time
to get soil tested before fertilizer is
needed. Although nitrogen is needed
in large amounts, nutrients such as
phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and
magnesium may be needed to expe-
dite regrowth and develop a good
root system before summer dry
weather rets in.
Most permanent pastures can use
greater amounts of fertilizer than have
been applied in recent years. Fertili-
zation is important for pasture growth,
drought tolerance and quality and
should be combined with other man-
agement practices such as weed
control and efficient use in a total
forage production program.
About the middle of April is a
good time to begin fertilizing hay
meadows. By then, night tempera-
tures should be above 60 dei
3 degrees and
bermudagrasses should i
to grow. If preemerge herbicides
were not applied earlier and broad-
leaf weeds are infesting the hay
meadow or pasture, a post-emerge
herbicide should be applied before
fertilization. This will prevent grow-
ing weeds from using the nutrients
before the bermudagrass gets grow-
ing good. If weeds are not controlled,
they will consume most of the fertil-
izer. Weeds make poor quality for-
age and take up space, water and
nutrients that are needed by the higher
Once fertilizer to be applied has
been determined, shop around for the
best prices. However, price is not the
only factor to consider. The honesty
and reliability of the dealer are very
important. A good job of spreading
the fertilizer is very important for
uniform production over the entire
meadow or pasture.

Soil temperatures have been
shown to have an important effect on
